Okanagan Humane Society
The Okanagan Humane Society (OHS) is a Registered Canadian Charity #8888 17269 RR 0001 committed to spaying and neutering pets to limit pet overpopulation by providing access to veterinary care for the most vulnerable animals in our communities: homeless, lost, abandoned, feral and unowned cats and dogs, and pets of low income families who experience barriers to accessing veterinary care. OHS operates in all communities of the Okanagan Valley and relies solely on grants and private donations to fund this work.
Critteraid Animal Sanctuary
We have grown from the initial cat sanctuary to include several additional divisions: Dog House Division, Critteraid Farm, Education, Outreach. We have learned to temper our growth with the number of volunteers who commit to caring for the animals.
Community support is vital to a charity like Critteraid where fundraising is constant in order to provide the necessary means for veterinary costs, operational costs and maintenance costs.

Paws it Forward
Paws It Forward began in November 2011 when two friends, working in a pet store, learned about the helpless animals being euthanized at high-kill shelters in California in order to make space. After they enlisted their friends and family to help save over 50 dogs from being euthanized they were able to find loving homes for each one. As the network of people wanting to help grew, they were able to help more dogs. None of this would be possible without the countless volunteers and foster homes that helped them on their journey.
We chose CB Rescue Foundation while we were doing an event in Calgary. CB Rescue is a registered non-profit dog rescue located in Calgary, Alberta. We are 100% volunteer based. All adoption fees are put back into the rescue to help more dogs. We specialize in saving dogs, fostering dogs, and finding each of them the perfect home. CB Rescue saves 90% of our dogs from within Alberta and 10% from outside the province.
